The ultimate alpha boyfriend
(A note to Gamers: I am not interested in getting into a pro and con discussion about Game. Been there, done that.)
We learn from today’s news that public relations executive and girlfriend disfigurer/killer/decapitator Raul Barerra has a history of using terrifying violence against a previous girlfriend and mother of his child.
Now, we know that according to Roissy and other Gamers, many women are naturally attracted to dangerous, violent men. The implication is that women who are attracted to such hyper masculine, “alpha” males are more vital, more truly female, than women who are not. But of course this is absurd. For a woman to be attracted to such as Barrerra, and, even more, for a woman to stay with Barerra after he has already beaten her and threatened her life, as Sarah Coit did, is a sign, not of high vitality, but of deep sickness.

Sarah Coit, in obeying her genetic imperatives (a.k.a. Evolution in Action), was looking for the best man with whom to reproduce, and someone who’s violent and more likely to kill her and her children is clearly more fit. And she is more fit because she’s searching for a more fit man. By golly, it’s true, because it’s true. Wait, that she succeeded all too well and got herself killed means she is less fit. And Raul Barrera, once he’s on death row, will receive a good number of marriage proposals from women, proving his extra-superior fitness. I’m sure I’m missing the exact, correct explanation, but, any way you look at it, Evolution works!Ingemar P. writes:
The moment I read that Sarah Coit was attracted to dangerous, abusive men my mind was immediately brought to thinking of the pseudoconservative fad known coyly as “Game.”Ingemar continues:
My mentioning Baron Bodissey had not so much to do with Game as with his silly insistence that we should oppose Islam by spreading “memes” rather than opposing it on principled grounds. I don’t know what his stance is with regard to “Game.”Robert B. writes:
James P. is correct in his assumption that women who are attracted to “dangerous” men are usually the victims of childhood abuse—that much I learned in Psych 101 in college thirty years ago. It was given to us as a warning to stay away from women who make themselves available in bars for one night stands (Game); more was said about men who chase them. That was the basis of my disagreement with Roissy over what constitutes a genuine alpha male and a genuine alpha female. [Charles?] Murray’s recent speech on trends in white middle class America bear this out. Alpha women (highly educated, well off) are not hanging out in bars, they are still going to church, getting married and having children. In “Game,” you beta males are chasing dysfunctional women. Real alpha males (assuming a certain level of maturity here) are courting alpha females. It has always been thus and always will be. People who know that have something valuable do not give it away. Dysfunctional females do not think they are worthwhile, regardless of whatever pose they are pretending to.Bruno L. writes:
If you believe that a man has to be and behave like, well, a man, then you believe in Game. Game isn’t just a technique to get women to accept fornicating with oneself: it is a way of behaving and a part of a philosophy of life that has that implication. How one deal with it has nothing to do with Game itself, just like knowing how to shoot and owning a gun has nothing to do with, well, killing people by shooting them.Ingemar P. writes:

Not surprisingly, in the Netherlands we have the same social phenomenon as in the rest of the West. Here is the picture of Asalam Samarie, who recently murdered 29-year old Renske Hekman and a 48-year old police officer. According to news reports, Samarie was the boyfriend of the murdered girl, and an illegal refugee who could not be extradited because the Dutch authorities did not know his native country. According to the LinkedIn page of the poor girl, she had a university education and worked at a seal rehabilitation center. It is striking that a smart beauty could be so stupid to date such a beast.
